iCAD, a provider of advanced image analysis and workflow solutions for the early identification of cancer, announces its schedule of events at the 96th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, from November 28 through December 3, 2010.
“At the RSNA this year, iCAD will continue to work with thought leaders in the radiology field and healthcare advocates to change the diagnostic paradigm for breast, prostate and colon cancers so that more people can access advanced imaging solutions for earlier detection of these prevalent cancers,” said Ken Ferry, President and CEO of iCAD. “Our recently FDA cleared CT Colonography technology, VeraLook, is expected to generate great interest this year, as continued research and data analysis show the promise of virtual colonography for improving patient adherence to guidelines supporting screening for colorectal cancer. Our leading-edge technologies for CAD applied to digital mammography and breast MRI are also expected to draw continued attention to this audience of more than 60,000 medical, scientific and corporate professionals.”
iCAD participation in scientific discussions at RSNA 2010
Important educational exhibits and scientific papers discussing the use of computer-aided detection (CAD) and other advanced image analysis solutions for the early detection of cancer include:
- On Monday, November 29, iCAD will participate in the International Prostate MRI Working Group, in conjunction with AdMeTech Foundation. Modeled on the Breast Cancer MRI Working Group, the goal of this group is to foster dialogue between academia, leading physicians, prostate cancer advocacy groups and industry to review emerging scientific data in order to expedite the advancement of MRI technologies and their use in the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer.
- iCAD will participate in the Quantitative Imaging Reading Room, an educational exhibit showcase highlighting products and applications that integrate quantitative analysis and structured reporting into the image interpretation and reporting process. iCAD’s poster, “Quantitative Image Suite Applied in Research and Clinical Practice,” will be on display Sunday through Thursday.
- An educational exhibit titled, “Optimizing Computer-aided Detection for CT Colonography: Understanding Stand Alone Software Accuracy,” Code: LL-GIE2306, by Dr. Abraham Dachman, Professor of Radiology and Director of Fellowship Programs at the University of Chicago will be on display in the Lakeside Learning Center.
- An educational exhibit titled, “Optimizing Time-efficient Use of Computer-aided Detection in Computed Tomographic Colonography (Virtual Colonoscopy),” Code: LL-GIE2302, by Dr. Abraham Dachman, will be on display in the Lakeside Learning Center.
- A scientific (formal) paper presentation titled, “CT Colonography of Nonpolypoid Colorectal Lesions: CAD-assisted versus Unassisted Reading by Radiologists with Different Levels of Experience,” Code: SSQ05-07, will be presented by Dr. Franco Iafrate of the Sapienza University of Rome on Thursday, December 2nd at 10:30 am in room E353C.
In addition, iCAD will host several mini educational sessions at its booth, #6216 in South Building, Hall A, located at McCormick Place. Sessions will be held daily at 10:30, 12:30, 2:30 and 4:30 and will cover such topics as DCE Protocol Optimization for Breast MRI, Treatment Planning with CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System, and iCAD’s VividLook quantitative image analysis solution.
